    Brilliant. I have the same thoughts every time I encounter this oddity in a movie. Just one more good reason to be a vegetarian.

    No harm, except for death, which isn’t recorded.

    So much hypocrisy, so little time.

    If any animals are harmed in the making of the movie, just eat it and it’s all good.

    If God didn’t want us to eat animals, why did he make them taste so good.

    You kill and eat living vegetables?! Disgusting…

    The movie thing is because the methods they used to film, say, horses falling down, didn’t instantly kill the animals, but made them suffer long painful deaths or permanent crippling.

    Movie horses were trained to fall down. They even used special soft materials in the saddles and stirrups – usually old tires – so the horses wouldn’t be hurt when they went down. If a horse is hurt at all, he won’t do it again. If you look carefully in the scenes where a horse falls, the ground is always clear and either soft earth, sand, or leaf-covered.

    ILM can install animatronics into a dead cow…

    Some were trained; others were tripped – especially in the ‘early’ days, before animal cruelty in films was cracked down on.

    See http://www.avclub.com/article/yes-animals-emwereem-harmed-21-films-and-tv-shows—72051 for some examples.

    “PETA”: People Eating Tasty Animals!
    -
    Been said so much it is not even a cliche anymore. Just a bad joke. Very bad.
    -
    60% of the GHG’s produced is from industry and our vehicles.
    30% from agriculture, feeding meat animals and over nitrogenizing the soils producing dead areas in the oceans from the runoffs.
    -
    60% of that agriculture is to feed animals to slaughter for food. Very expensive and we are running out of means of supporting such an extravagance. Would be nice if we cut it back to 10%, and add the 50% to food plants for humans.

    This was after they would trip the horses, usually breaking their legs in doing so.

    I know that you’re just being a smart-ass, but food animals eat vegetation too, in fact about 10 times as much as you’d have to eat to get the same amount of food as you get by eating them. If there really were anything objectionable about killing vegetables, then vegetarianism (in fact veganism) would be the only proper response.
